Melissa Araujo Tim Lewis PHotography Lightbulbs Portrait Portland Oregon

I had an idea for a shoot. Get a lot of vintage looking lightbulbs and hang them from the ceiling, then put Melissa in the middle of them and have her pose really otherworldy. Create a sort of ethereal vibe, and make room for Melissa (a trained dancer) to create. I really just wanted to give her a cool space to do her thing, and she absolutely killed it, hitting pose after pose and bringing a wide range of emotion to the shoot. It was a great shoot, it’s amazing to see an idea blossom like this when you put it in the hands of someone amazing.
